A Good Death
22 October, 2015
Godfrey Tanner Bar
Philosophers spend a great deal of time thinking about how to live the “good life” but what about a good death? What is the significance of this universal human experience that none of us can avoid? Is death even necessarily the end? Perhaps we will continue on in some capacity afterwards, either spiritually or in terms of the legacy we leave behind for those still living. More concretely, we might consider the extent to which our society’s perceptions of what makes a good death are reflected in the Australian legal and healthcare systems.
The event will take place between 5:00 – 8:30pm this Thursday 22 October in Derkenne Courtyard just outside the Godfrey Tanner Bar on Callaghan Campus.
There will be plenty of food available for members, including vegan and gluten free options. If you’re not a member you can join on the night for $2 (it’s steep, I know).
Our events are usually quite informal. You can bring whoever you want, turn up late, wear fancy clothes or none at all.
We'll have the outdoor cinema connected to the net, with opportunities to share short videos, images or audio for group discussion.
We hope to see you all there!
